Here’s your climate change, pal

Hope you enjoyed that bacon while it lasted!

Might want to get your fill of ham this year, because “a world shortage of pork and bacon next year is now unavoidable,” according to an industry trade group.


Blame the drought conditions that blazed through the corn and soybean crop this year. Less feed led to herds declining across the European Union “at a significant rate,” according to the National Pig Assn. in Britain.


And the trend “is being mirrored around the world,” according to a release (hat tip to the Financial Times).


In the second half of next year, the number of slaughtered pigs could fall 10%, doubling the price of European pork, according to the release.

  1. Actually this is a plot by the Juuues to rid the planet of cloven-hoofed animals. Noah would be so pissed.

  2. FTA: “In the second half of next year, the number of slaughtered pigs could fall 10%, doubling the price of European pork…”

    Interesting how that math works.
    Ten percent supply drop = 100 percent price increase.
    Math, how does it work?

  3. Soy bacon is so salty you can’t taste the difference. Also red and white, but not as greasy. Your arteries will love it.
